A report released this month by Health Watch Surrey, the local consumer champion for health and social care services, has found that emotional wellbeing is the top health priority for young people.
In a survey of 220 young people in Surrey carried out by Surrey Youth Focus, more than 70% were concerned about potential health issues.
The four most reported concerns all related to emotional wellbeing: depression, self-image, self harming and exam pressures. Bullying was seen as a common origin of these problems.
